Nude & Neon Stripes

Hey lovely ladies!

I had a super busy week this week between working and getting to see some of my family lately. I wanted a quick manicure that would still pop. Since it was summer, I definitely needed neons for this. Unfortunately, even the brightest neon yellow I owned didn't really work as well as I wanted it to. If I try this again I will definitely try using a white underneath any of the neons to help it show up better.

For this manicure I used striping tape to get the straight lines. Polish used included Sinful Colors Neon melon and Essie Case study. I wish I would have had thicker striping tape to make thicker lines, though. After I removed the tape I tried to add a little thickness to the neon yellow lines free hand, but that didn't work out so well, FAIL! 

All in all I didn't really care for how this manicure turned out. It seemed much nicer in my head before I actually tried it out LOL I'm going to try water marbling (my second try) next to hopefully that will turn out much better. But I guess they can't all be winners.  


  1. I have been trying to get the hang of water marbling too, it is really tricky! I usually get one good nail, and 9 other messes lol!

    Nice blog, your really creative!
